    I worked at Wine Warehouse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff, health/dental insurance, company paid holidays, commission

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals, poor management, no overtime (and expect to always work overtime, including your time off), physically demanding, overloading employees with too much work (prepare to work three times harder than most other sales reps from other distributors)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of accounts per rep (too many accounts and too large territories), have reps focus on one thing and only have one job role (they can't be wine reps, beer vendors, and merchandisers), support reps by joining them in the field, better communication
